Entering the The Grey for a pre-dinner drink in the front room will remind you of a diner, thanks to the re-purposed surroundings in a former greyhound bus station. Moving into the main dining room continues the theme with numbered departure doors along one wall and the primary bar. The old ticket window serves as the kitchen pass where delicious food emerges.
The bus station similarity stops there thanks to the upscale surroundings, craft cocktails, southern cuisine and hospitality of James Beard award winning chef/partner Mashama Bailey.

Amuse bouche of watermelon sorbet popsicles.
Perfectly cooked lamb with carrot, farro and spring onion.
